Nancy Page's Garden Bouquet
by Nancy Page.
(aka Florence La Ganke Harris)
Patterns for Garden Bouquet was first presented in a weekly format in 1931 in newspapers across the country. The signature urn and bird appliques with a sampler of garden flowers was a hit with quiltmakers then and now. I have always been attracted to this design and would like to share examples from quilt-makers of yesteryear and their interpretations of this botanical sampler quilt.
Enjoy the charm of this next group of Nancy Page Garden Bouquet blocks. Made during the years of the Great Depression, they express a whimsical spirit combining the fabric scraps of thrifty time in fun and artistic designs.
